Extra Enrichment

At Edison, we believe that enrichment activities are an essential part of a well-rounded academic education. Therefore, Edison is proud to offer a variety of after school enrichment classes for students who attend our school.

 

If you wish to sign your child up for an enrichment class, please be aware of the following important information.

  • After school enrichment classes are run by independent providers or DPS teachers who are renting a space at Edison to provide this service. These providers are not supervised or overseen by the school leadership or the Edison Extra Enrichment Coordinator (Bayleigh Arey), however, they do complete an application and a background check in order to be approved to lead a class at our school. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the individual provider(s).
  • Parents need to register and pay for each class in which they wish their child to participate.
  • The enrichment schedule will be posted on the Extra Enrichment tab of the Edison website, the day before registration goes live with the registration links.
  • After school classes are typically held one day per week and will run from 3:30-4:30 pm.
    • The Fall Enrichment classes will start the week of August 29 and end on December 5, there is a make-up week if needed; the week of December 12.
    • The Spring Enrichment classes will start the week of January 9 and end on May 1 there is a make-up week if needed; the week of May 8.
  • Provider pick up for students after school:
    • For students in ECE-K:  At 3:25, Edison EXTRA Enrichment providers will pick up ECE and Kinder students from their classrooms and sign them out.
    • For students in 1st-5th grades: At 3:25 pm, all Edison 1st-5th grade students will be dismissed on the east side of the building. Students participating in Edison Extra Enrichment programs will be dismissed by their classroom teachers and sent to the picnic table area, near the steps to the school library, to join their enrichment provider.
    • Discovery Link Families: The parents or guardians of children participating in Discovery Link, will need to complete an Enrichment Provider Form. These forms are available at Edison’s Discovery Link office and need to be completed prior to each activity (or session) and for each individual child. On days your child is registered for enrichment activities your child will go directly to his/her enrichment activity at the end of the school day, they DO NOT go to Discovery Link first, they proceed directly to the Edison Extra Enrichment pickup area. The enrichment provider is responsible for ensuring your child gets to Discovery Link at the end of the enrichment program.
  • At the end of the enrichment class: The provider will walk ALL students to the main entrance (on the front or west side) of the school and take them outside to meet their parents/guardians or those authorized to pick them up. Parents/guardians are asked to please be on time and wait outside. When all the regular students have been picked up the provider must walk their Discovery Link students to the appropriate location and sign them in.
